City Gallery Downloads and Update
- I am in the process of restoring Downloads to City Gallery. There were
not many, but the installation of the content management system
affected the directory where the files were residing and blocked
access to content that had been previously available for years. The
installer gave no warning. So I've removed the block.
The files available for download include
* Carte de Visite Matrix. A chart to help estimate when a carte de
visite was produced.
* Family Photo Form. A blank form to record information about a family

If the traffic stays low I can I keep them there. Otherwise, I will
move them to GenPhoto files section.
A year ago, in Spring 2006, I began the process of reviving City
Gallery by cleaning out old content, reorganizing the site, disabling
parts of the site with security issues (at least temporarily), created
a new look for the site and replace an ad hoc collection of scripts
with an open source content management system. As the year went by, I
became increasingly sick until in December I was finally diagnosed
with Crohn's disease. I had had a flare up.
I am still not completely well, but hope to do what I can to restore
City Gallery to operation. This is not helped by the increasing number
of spammers using web robots to assault websites featuring tools that
enable users to contribute content. I will be unable to bring back the
City Gallery album until the code can be replaced with more secure and
I must fit work on City Gallery into my work on Folkstreams
(folkstreams.net) and other commercial work.
